Digestive Upsets

Nearly 66 percent of women regularly struggle with digestive upsets, with heartburn, bloating and indigestion topping the list, according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Rx: Apple cider vinegar. If your tummy’s often in an uproar, small daily doses of cider vinegar can improve your digestion in as little as two days, says gastroenterologist Joseph Brasco, M.D., author of Restoring Your Digestive Health. “It’s packed with malic and tartaric acids -- powerful digestive aids that speed fat and protein breakdown, so your stomach can empty quickly and effectively.”

DIY: Sip one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with eight ounces of water a few minutes before each meal.
